He is the author of Modern Law: The Law Transmission System and Equal Employment Opportunity (1993); Black Employment and the Law (1971); and coauthor, with J. Blair, of Enforcing Equality in Housing and Employment through State Civil Rights Laws
(1972). Professor Blumrosen was acting dean of the School of Law-Newark

In 1998, Professor Blumrosen became director of the Intentional
Employment Discrimination Project, funded by the Ford Foundation. In
2002, the project published "The Reality of Intentional Job
Discrimination in Metropolitan America," a landmark study of
intentional job discrimination in the United States and each state and
metropolitan area, based on a statistical analysis of employer reports
on the composition of their workforce, combined with legal standards to
identify intentional job discrimination.
